Yes, that just happened. Kalena Arellano nailed her first muscle-up less than 24 hours after the contest started. Like I mention in the video, that is the shortest contest we have ever held. Congratulations to her for putting in the work, drilling the fundamentals of the transition and putting it all together to successfully land her first muscle-up. Kalena has been with CrownTown coming up on her one year anniversary. She’s come a long way after giving birth to her fourth child just over a year ago in such a short amount of time. By the way, she also PR’d her deadlift today by 55 pounds. She’s on a mission and we’re proud to help her any way we can to continue to advancing her fitness goals.
Furthermore, I think there are a handful of women still out there that can do what Kalena did. And, I want to embrace that by extending the contest to also the next woman to get her first muscle-up. So,…I know you were bittersweet momentarily, but now there is no reason to be. Get out there and make it happen! Next woman to get their first muscle-up gets a FREE pair of custom Reebok CrossFit shoes (Nanos or Olys). Let’s gogogogogogogogogogo! ~ WW

Both of these skill sets are great compliments to CrossFit training. They will help you recover from previous workouts and also allow you to achieve new range of motion during your WODs, which will increase strength and performance. We are very excited to be adding this program for all CrossFit members. This class will be instructed by Lauren Lujan every Thursday at 8am, and additionally, two Friday’s per month at 5pm beginning February 7th. The class will be 45-60 minutes in duration.
